    I'm anti democracy. Because of too much greed,

    we are destroying our Mother Nature, people go too much for money. All bad things comes in democracy. People become selfish. Weed, human trafficking. Those bad thing happen in democracy. Because only in democracy it's possible. It is against our human nature.
